Finnish doomy dark metal band 0XÍST has parted ways with guitarist Henrik Hajanti. The group, which will embark on its first European tour in March, has yet to announce a replacement.
0XÍST's debut album, "Nil", was released last year as a joint effort by French labels Ostra Records and Cold Void Emanations. The CD was recorded and mixed at D-Studio in Klaukkala. The cover art and the booklet layout were designed by French artist YhN.
"Nil" track listing:
01. Old World Vanished 02. Nil 03. Cold Dark Matter 04. Arrival 05. Anemone Patens MCCXLIX 06. Of Wood, Stone And Bone 07. Shrivel
The song "Shrivel" can be streamed below.
"Nil" was the first 0XÍST release to feature Mikael Ahlstén (ex-SAATTUE) on drums.
0XÍST, which stands for "zero exist," "performs metal that is slow, heavy, menacing and stands truthfully for what it is being described to be — dark metal," according to a press release.
